Remedies and treatments for loss of skin tone

The skin is one of the most important organs in your body. It acts as a protective barrier, preventing the harmful substances from entering and regulating your body temperature. However, as the years go by, it inevitably undergoes a physiological aging process caused by multiple factors.

One of the first signs of skin aging is the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and older-looking skin, caused by the loss of collagen and elastin and exposure to environmental factors such as sunlight, pollution and oxidative stress. Over time, the skin becomes less elastic and toned, resulting in sagging skin that can occur in various parts of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, and legs.

Although skin aging is a natural process, there are some measures you can take to minimize its effects.

What sagging facial skin looks like

As the years go by, the production of collagen and elastin, the two proteins essential for skin firmness, gradually declines. This results in a loss of elasticity and firmness, leading to sagging cheeks and bags under the eyes.

This is a physiological phenomenon: the force of gravity "pulls down" the skin, leading to the formation of:

  • Sagging cheeks;
  • Wrinkles and fine lines (especially in the lip and eye areas);
  • Bags under the eyes;
  • Droopy eyelids;
  • Nasolabial folds (the wrinkles in the area between the nose and mouth);
  • Double chin.

What are the causes of sagging skin?

In addition to skin aging, there are other causes that can contribute to the appearance of sagging skin, including poor diet, lack of skin hydration, smoking and alcohol abuse, excessive UV exposure, environmental smog and pollution, and genetic predisposition.

To preserve the wellbeing of your skin, it’s important to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and good hydration, as well as avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. It’s also important to protect your skin from UV exposure by using sunscreen and protective clothing.

How to minimize sagging facial skin

It may be a natural phenomenon, but there are still ways to combat and treat sagging facial skin.

Moisturize your skin

First, it’s important to pay attention to hydration: your skin is covered with a hydrolipid barrier, which protects you and maintains your hydration. When this barrier thins, your skin becomes more vulnerable to attack, which can lead to accelerated skin aging.

Therefore, you should include a moisturizer (preferably enriched with antioxidants) in your daily skincare routine, applied morning and evening).

Protect your skin from UV rays

Everyone likes a tan, but UV rays are among the main culprits of photoaging. If you don’t protect yourself properly from the sun, your chances of developing skin blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines will increase.

It’s therefore a good idea to always apply a sunscreen to your face, even when going about your daily business.

Facial gymnastics

One way to counteract the signs of skin aging, including the appearance of sagging skin, is facial exercises. Just as you might go to the gym to tone your body, y our facial muscles also need toning. Facial gymnastics consists of a series of exercises to keep your facial muscles toned and to firm the tissue. It only takes a few minutes a day: facial gymnastics exercises can be done anywhere and at any time of the day, even when you’re sitting in front of the computer.
